    Size 16/18 and Looking Good!she

    When I was growing up I was skinny. I spent all my time outside, running, swimming and riding bikes. Then puberty hit when I was about 10 or 11. Yeah, skinny? Went out the window. I had developed quickly but definitely not quietly! I remember my teacher in 5th grade telling me...

    Am I Really Beautiful?

    I'm 19. Growing up I was a pretty normal kid. A bit chubby but that was ok. Unlike most kids, I never got rid of my baby fat. I'm lazy, no big deal. I can't remember ever being teased about my weight. I've always been told (by family) that I'm beautiful, pretty, etc. but... One...

    I Am Of Charm!

    I had an epiphany yesterday. I was standing in front of the mirror in my nightgown brushing my hair, like I do every night before bedtime. There was a soap on the TV and it got me thinking: "So, Marg, when is your time to be loved?" My thoughts answered me on autopilot...

    I Need More Confidence!

    So ever since I was little I've been a chubby girl. As I went through my teen years I've had boyfriends and guys tell me I'm beautiful, but for some reason I never feel it. I wish I did have more confidence. Advice would be appreciated :)<3

    Being plus sized is a challenge.

    You have a constant voice in your head telling you to lose weight and be a "normal" size. But then you also have a voice that tells you that you are beautiful and to be confident in who you are. But you can't forget the voices outside your mind, nagging, yelling and telling...

    Did Not Always Believe It

    I have been a size 18/20 from around the age of 15. Puberty hit me early (age 9). Even when I was still incredibly thin (and I was for quite a while), I always felt I had to lose 50 pounds. I never did anything to cause me to lose that weight, but I kept thinking...
